Liverpool's Klopp will not rush Salah back into action

The in-form Egypt winger hobbled out of Wednesday's stunning 3-0 Champions League win against Manchester City to spark fears among the Anfield faithful ahead of the Merseyside derby.

Liverpool's Egyptian global then set-up Sadio Mane to head home a third goal as the Reds put one foot in the semi-finals of the Champions League with an impressive victory over the Premier League champions-elect. "I don't know in the moment".

And while Klopp relayed Salah's positive outlook in his postgame news conference, he also cautioned Liverpool will still be anxiously awaiting tests on his fitness.

The Egypt worldwide opened the scoring for Liverpool in the 12th minute. "He came to the sideline and said he felt something".

"After the game I asked him and he said, "I will be good, it will be fine". "There are two reasons: I don't want to give too much away and we want to wait a little bit".

Klopp has a raft of injuries to contend with as Emre Can has not recovered from a back problem which has sidelined him since before the global break while fellow midfielders Adam Lallana and Ben Woodburn and defenders Ragnar Klavan, Joel Matip and Joe Gomez are all out.

"The derby is the most important game for the people so that is how we take it".

"I can't make Mo available because it's the derby, I'd never do it".

"But I would not rest a player with absolutely nothing, because we are used to playing every three days, that's not the problem".

Salah, who moved to Anfield from Roma last summer, has netted 38 times for Liverpool during his sterling debut season with the club.
